Dorrego Flea Market

Until 2006, the Dorrego Flea Market – also know as the “Mercado de las Pulgas” in Spanish – was (literally) a maze to get lost in, while looking through piles of relics and antiquities stored randomly by each vendor. But today, after a five years modernization process which was originally supposed to only last a few months, the Dorrego Flea Market lost a bit of its genuineness and originality: Gone are the days of searching and searching until you found something you could not have imagined finding there; the Dorrego Flea Market is now a relatively well organized market place. Since July 2011, the “renewed” Dorrego Flea Market, is back to its usual place; it features today 143 well organized booths over 13,400 square meters, which are specialized in diverse products such as glassware, furniture, brass-ware, clothes and pictures. Even though today the Dorrego Flea Market has nothing to do with the previous “sweet chaos” it was made of, it has still much to offer to those who dare to visit it with a sharp eye and a bit of patience. While some businesses offer decorative replica of designer furniture, the quality of the original is usually superior, and worth finding. Source: By S
